Joleen Bindo. From Knights of the Old Republic, also from Bioware, and he also exists in the ToR continuity (in the distant past though).
If you want to know how far you can go as a Jedi without falling to the Dark Side, I guess you can start with that character, and from there use your imagination and come up with an own character who similarly doesnt follow the Jedi code. Not sure if you will accept him as "badass", but he sure demonstrates that disobedience and maybe even a "renegade" path might be possible.
I'm not allowed to post links yet, please look him up on youtube. He's like, the cynical humorous Morgan Freeman-Jedi with some nice stories (and probably dirty jokes).
He's not officially "employed" by anyone (he lives an exiles life), but he has fully developed Jedi-Powers, and decides to join the protagonist to safe the Galaxy from the Sith. He can give the impression that he's "neutral", but it gets obvious that he belongs to the light side really.

I looked Jolee Bindo up, and he's pretty awesome. That's what I was looking for, a jedi who isn't afraid to be silly and show his true emotions, rather than being a "turn the other cheek hear no evil speak no evil" type.
Myself I find Kyle Katarn pretty badass. Probably my favourite jedi.
Edit: link for those who are interested:

Is this restricted to characters in the old republic era? I feel like it must be, given all the comments about "herp derp jedi cant have relationships" when the new order after the fall of the empire had a....somewhat different approach.
Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hatred, religion, war, or violence.
I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.
For once, Carville was a man ahead of his time.
people can trash talk the EU as much as they want, i love it
Depends on what you mean by badass I suppose...not all Jedi are necessarily celibate either, it's only the more "recent" (ie, movie) timeline (and maybe a few hundred years prior, I'm suspecting myself it's only after they thought they wiped out the Sith they instituted the whole celibacy thing) that the Jedis are really strict on that; going to TOR and older, you can find several examples of Jedi couples and some children out there, and obviously the EU stuff after the movies support this as well.
That being said, to me badass means kicking ass, which almost all Jedi are capable of. Examples, look at Obi Wan, Yoda, Revan, etc. The dude Malgus killed in the Deceived trailer was apparently a top flight master as well.
he looked at the Lightsaber forms other people used, though yeah, they're pretty cool... but I want one that's like... 100x more badass... hmm.. that doesn't exist.. guess I'll just have to dig up some ancient form that's been disallowed by the Jedi for being too close to the Dark Side, and fix it, making it my own style.
Vapaad FTW my Sentinal is going Watchman, just so he can use Juyo
Mace Windu was probably one of the most boring and static characters in Star Wars' history. On the other hand, George was never an actor director, and he had no idea how to properly write characters.
So, basically... I guess Luke Skywalker matches that description pretty nicely?
Other than that, pfft. Nothing about the prequel jedis was awesome or "badass".
The basic idea, sure, it could've worked out in a proper character-driven plotline. But the execution was all wrong and sterile and cynical. Argh.
It boggles the mind.

"Every time I see that commercial for this movie I laugh."
"The one with the vegetarian bedazzled vampires."
All I know is I hope Ganner isn't a restricted name in SWTOR, because that is totally what I want to name my jedi.
Like what type of badass has a purple lightsaber? Seriously. Mace Windu.
